I walked by this penshop hundreds of times in my Boston years. Mostly window shopping, I finally entered and it felt like a kid entering a toy shop. Glorious inventory and staff obviously engaged with their merchandise. I recommend it.

I love this place. I'm a Luddite in that I still use a Filofax (paper date planner) and they have one of the best selections of inserts I've seen anywhere. The guy who runs the place is pleasant and it's just kind of a throw...More
